About Doreen Whitehead

We moved here from Yorkshire in 2011 after purchasing the property the year before. We wanted a slower pace of life and as we both love the countryside this area fitted the bill, with lovely scenery on our doorstep and beautiful lakes a short distance away.

It has taken us two years to fully renovate the property which consists of 2 cottages and a barn and have tried to retain as many original features as possible. We have undertaken all the work ourselves (apart from the electrics) and became "regulars" at the local DIY store. The garden which had been untouched for years was overgrown with nettles and brambles but now features flower beds and a vegetable plot which supplies us with an abundance of fruit and vegetables

Doreen Whitehead purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Doreen Whitehead chose Creuse

We wanted a peaceful location in a rural setting yet close to a small town. The surrounding area is beautiful with rolling hills, green valleys, churches and chateaux. The sunsets are amazing often producing vibrant colours followed by starry skies.

There are miles of walks along country lanes, swimming lakes with beaches, bars and restaurants

What makes this cottage unique

The property benefits from being in a small hamlet yet a couple of minutes drive away from the small town of Genouillac with all its amenities,including two boulangeries where you can pick up fresh bread,crossiants,etc.There is also a butchers,pharmacy,restaurant and post office.

The owners garden is for guests use so whether you just want to relax on one of the loungers or sit in the shade at the bottom of the garden with a good book,or watch the sun go down with a glass of wine it is all here for you.
